We live in the Pacific Northwest, and we have been gratified to see so many great wines start to come out of this region. My wife grew up visiting family in Yamhill, Oregon, and the site of her grandparents former blackberry farm is now home to a vineyard. We often visit winemaker friends in Walla Walla, Washington, and Christina used to do PR for the Yakima Valley Wine Association and its winemakers and wine growers.
We are not partial to any one region – except perhaps Bordeaux – instead we like to make a game out of guessing the region on taste characteristics alone, when presented with the blind opportunity.
Regardless of region, we are always on the lookout for great values, amazing experiences and wines that suit our particular palate. We’ll share what we find and hope you’ll do the same.
